Steve wasn't desperate and did not make his millionaire status from a car wash. lol He had friends whom asked him for a loan. The loan turned out to be for CMKM stock and Steve had never heard of it. When they repaid the loan, they also gave Steve a cert for 2 million shares. SK could not make heads nor tails of what CMKM actually was so he contacted the company, ending up with meeting Frizzell. Steve's previous business acumen had included successfully navigating an endless stream of bureaucracy, he did NOT need CMKM Diamonds lol

Frizzell showed him $135 Million in judgments and said it was going to be great if only the suits could get some front money and there would be a lot of capital to run the company. Steve had never been involved
in a company whose only product was lawsuits and unfortunately it would take some time for Steve to realistically see and understand the whole CMKM debacle.

Researchers were the first to speak to Steve and at first we just listened, Steve did not know much and impossible for him to lie on his own, but we immediately knew what he was saying was parroting Frizzell. I called sneakerbabe and asked if she was listening to this set up by Frizzell and company? She had been thinking the same thing per her convo's. Nufced had personally met Steve in California regarding a John Edwards asset Can-Cal Resources. Whom held a $900,000 contract with Edwards over some land deal.

Also where Steve met with Emerson Koch and shook hands but NOBODY told Steve that Koch had written Kevin West and told him emphatically the JV deal had to be done by October 31, 2012. Emerson seemed to just kind of sit and wait to see what Steve might do. Losing the Glenn trial told Emerson, there was no way CMKM could meet its financial end of the deal.

Lowden and Frizzell annihilated the Can-Cal settlement, with help from raging bull poster, leowanta/Janet Douglass. It was sitting at $300,000 when Janet called Can-Can. A certifiable nut case in things she told them and posted, but she did tell them one thing and was music to their ears. That CMKM was near bankruptcy. Can-Cal immediately put the asset into a third party name and contract and CMKM would not be able to afford a now very long and expensive litigation.

Shelley had a stroke and very serious brain bleed. We had no idea what her future would hold as she was having to learn everything all again and was making progress. It would take years, if ever, she could use a computer again and exactly if she had any short time memory. We were thrilled when one day out of the blue she asked for a CMKM update. Not bcuz anyone was going to or wanted to speak to her about CMKM but that she had Remembered the Can-Cal. She held some short term memory.

Her husband answered her questions with info from sneakerbabe. It is still soooo very sad at the end of her sweet, sweet life and pretty much last moments of being lucid, she was still worried about CMKM. When she heard the news, she clearly said, I want nothing more to do with this company. She was absolutely furious with Frizzell and most debilitatingly, suffered another brain bleed which ended this beautiful woman and our dear friend's life. The news to Frizzell generated, she was like a daughter to him and he sent sandwiches.

Shelley wanted to know everything that happened in CMKM and wanted us to not so much help Frizzell but Steve. She had spent a lot of time with Frizzell trying to crack a big Edwards asset. It led to a dead end. The rest of us were emotionally destroyed and definitely on a raging burn with Frizzell. Things were at a standstill.

It took us some time to come to grips with it all and I told snearbabe that we were going to bust that asset wide open for Shelley. I spent months of total hell putting that together. Every action changed the parcel number and why no progress could be made earlier, a huge, huge complicated mess. Also the year after Shelley's death a boatload of discovery came into the company thru an unexpected mean, the real, horribly ugly, ugly truth , so much more defined and evidenced than we could even fathom. We kept going despite Frizzell and mostly to honor Shelley's wish, as tough as that was.

As gob has stated many times nufced brought him back into research prior Steve, kicking and screaming. We all loved Shelley dearly and she still had a lot of faith in Bill and Kevin at the time and she really liked Steve. The rest of us thought more if anyone could maybe bail the titanic out, it might be Steve. When Steve requested we join his research team, we volunteered our services...again. We also thought Frizzell would have some oversight he would have to listen to, as Steve reduced him from general counsel to contingency attorney. Obviously that went against the grain of things and Frizzell went off the reservation.

This is extremely difficult to write about still and I need to go think about something else, any thing but CMKM right now...
